How Delicious!

Jemma devours the sweet little organic pears we found at Trader Joe's (our favorite store.) She eats the whole pear all by herself and it's such a delight to watch. She goes at it with such expertise, leaving the stem and pits but eating every other bit and sometimes asking for another. You can see how happy they make her.

Happy Year of the Boar!

Once again we brought in the Chinese New Year in full swing - with an elaborate banquet at the Empress Pavillion in Chinatown. Jemma loves to eat long life noodles, though it's hard to pick them up with a fork! The entertainment was hypnotic - the Chinese Charlie Chaplin magician wowed the crowed with endless tricks. Jemma sat in Mary Fran's lap the entire show and didn't budge once. It was a star-studded event this time - Meg Ryan and Julia Sweeny were whooping it up their their daughters and Laura Dern was there, too - could she be the next celebrity to adopt from China? We'll have to follow the news to find out.
